REDS MIDTOWN TAVERN
At the corner of one of Toronto’s busiest intersections, you’ll find a place bustling with energy. At REDS Midtown, we believe delicious food should be shared and enjoyed with our crafted cocktails. Our contemporary semi-private spaces provide the perfect venue for your next casual business meeting or get-together with friends and family. Because REDS Midtown Tavern is an open-concept space, we cannot offer any fully-private space unless the full restaurant is booked for your event.
NOTE: RENTAL, MUSIC SETUP/DJ OR ADDITIONAL STAFFING FEES DO NOT GO TOWARDS MEETING MINIMUM FOOD AND BEVERAGE SPENDS
Great for informal meetings or social gatherings, the semi-private Gerrard Room features an original modern photography installation and seats up to 12 guests comfortably or up to 14 at the table with a guest at either end of the table. This room has a glass wall along our secondary entrance – meaning that your group will be visible to passersby. Rather than having a door, heavy curtains separate the entrance of the Gerrard room from the dining room, so it is still very much a part of the restaurant’s atmosphere, and meetings may not be appropriate in the space depending on desired noise levels. The Gerrard room is only appropriate for sit-down meals.
The mezzanine is an offset and semi-private balcony-style floor that overlooks our main dining room and bar. Designed to have a comfortable lounge feel, this space may be set to accommodate cocktail parties up to 60, and dinners of 12 to 45, depending on desired table set up. As with the rest of the restaurant, this is a casual space: while there is control over the volume of the speakers on this level, there is no way to block or muffle the atmosphere and noises throughout the rest of the restaurant from travelling up. The primary washrooms are located on this level – so even a full mezzanine buyout will not be fully exclusive – other guests will be coming up and down to use the facilities, but they will only be walking around the perimeter of the space, not crossing through your party.
REDS Midtown’s main level has two sections which we call the Upper and Lower Cocktails which border our main Yonge Street entrance and are adjacent to the bar. These areas are seated on a first-come/first-serve basis, but are great for a non-private casual reception or dinner. Both sections, particularly the lower cocktail, are right along the entrance path, however we can provide a stanchion to designate the space. All furniture in the cocktail sections is permanently placed and rearrangement is not possible. This means that sit-down meals for larger parties would be split up between multiple tables/booths
Featuring direct access to a section of the bar and floor-to-ceiling windows facing Yonge, the Upper cocktail features all can accommodate up to 40 for a standing function or 25 seated, bistro-style.
The Lower Cocktail will comfortably accommodate standing functions of 40, and seated dinners of up to 28 between 1 high-top harvest table and 5 booths of 2-4 each. Featuring two live-edge and floor to ceiling windows facing Gerrard, the Lower Cocktail houses the doors to our outdoor patio, which may be booked along with the space in the summer months for an additional fee.
Both Cocktail section bookings require special approval – Minimum spends vary based on date, start time & time of year; quotes available upon request
